Likes seasons before, LOCKED UP ABROAD takes viewers inside firsthand accounts of capture, imprisonment and pure terror far from home. However, the premiere episode “From Hollywood to Hell” marks a LOCKED UP ABROAD first as Hollywood actor Erik Aude re-enacts his own story. After playing in a supporting role in “Dude, Where My Car?” Aude is arrested in Pakistan when police discover opium in the lining of his suitcase, leading to a nearly three-year nightmare, which few would have survived. Now, he tells his story, from innocently traveling in a new country to his initial detainment and endless brutal beatings.
In anticipation of the premiere, a digital hub has been launched to allow fans to share their own #ToHellAndBack stories. From medical nightmares to terrible airline experiences. Check it out at this location — http://natgeotv.com/hell
Remember to mark your calendar! LOCKED UP ABROAD premieres Wednesday, April 25th at 10pm on Nat Geo TV!
